Dominik: Puzzle for Bills starts at QB

Posted by Chris Brown on January 26, 2017 – 10:18 am

Ex-NFL GM Mark Dominik, now an ESPN NFL analyst likes the staff that new Bills head coach Sean McDermott has put together in Buffalo. Now comes the task of crafting and reshaping the roster and the big decision obviously lies at quarterback. As Dominik sees it the situation concerning Tyrod Taylor’s future with Buffalo is a compelling one.

“You’ve got the interesting situation with Tyrod,” said Dominik. “But there’s a big puzzle to be put together on quarterbacks in general, whether it’s some of the veterans that are out there like (Jay) Cutler and (Ryan) Fitzpatrick. And where does Kaepernick fit. So they’ve got their work cut out for them.”

What Dominik feels is working in favor of the new coaching staff is they have day-to-day working familiarity with Taylor, thanks to offensive coordinator Rick Dennison’s season with Taylor in Baltimore in 2014 when he was quarterbacks coach.

“The good thing is Dennison has worked with a lot of different quarterbacks if you look at his track record over the last few years,” said Dominik. “Tyrod Taylor has been with him before. They’ve got to get it right.”

How things worked between Kubiak & Dennison

Posted by Chris Brown on January 23, 2017 – 11:16 pm

There have been widespread reports over the years about the amount of latitude now retired head coach Gary Kubiak had with his play calling delegation to Bills new offensive coordinator Rick Dennison. It’s no secret that Kubiak called plays, but there were several games over the years where Dennison also called plays. Broncos receivers coach Tyke Tolbert, who worked the past two years with both Kubiak and Dennison in the offensive meeting rooms, set the record straight as to how things functioned in an appearance on the John Murphy Show.

“It was a collaboration,” Tolbert said. “Gary Kubiak was an offensive guy through and through. He played the position and coached the position and came up in the west coast system. He knows it like the palm of his hand like Rico (Dennison) does. So it was collaboration with everything. During the week we all had our part, and Gary Kubiak was a big part of that game planning. Coach Kubiak, Rick Dennison and (QBs coach) Greg Knapp had the most input in terms of what we were doing.”

More on Dennison’s handling of the offense in Tuesday’s edition of Bills Today.
